Excellent course for anyone who is familiar with html, css, but cannot organise the subject in their mind. This course excellently teaches you the what is what, and how to do things in the correct way

This is course is amazing given ou already know some html, css and javascript. People say Bootstrap is easy but after this course I realized many wrong things I have been doing. Recommend it for sure!

Excellent !

*Strongly recommended for every CS student!* Hands down one of the best Computer Science courses I have ever taken. The structuring of the course, the breadth and depth of the content, the inclusion of Bootstrap specifications and features into the learning path, the assignments that are challenging enough not to be overly difficult, and above all the instructor, Jogesh Muppala. He is as insightful and comprehensive as he is hilariously funny. Just to give three of his jokes:

1. At this stage, you are probably expecting me to say "A picture is worth a thousand words", but that's not what I'm going to say. I'm going to say that, "A picture is worth $12 on"

2. It's time to move on to the next exercise, called Exercise: Less. Something that you wish your doctor will tell you when you visit him or her the next time.

3. The Grunt people are grunting all over, saying that theirs is the best way of doing it. Which the Gulp community finds hard to swallow. Both these communities can easily give your televangelists a run for their money.

I thought it was a good class. I didn't know before how important <div> and <span> were in html. Nice to see how a web space will be responsive to the size of the screen it appears on. Got to see font-awesome and plenty of other fonts I had never heard of. Wanted to see how to use a database with this, but that wasn't included. Did not know there was such a thing as a carousel view , which was cool, too. Professor spoke better English than I do. I like the classes that show you material and then give you assignments based on the material shown. I took data science course that had assignments that had nothing to do with the stuff presented in class. I am writing a site for my dementia caregiver support group

The compression of the sound in the course videos is very, very rough. It has created compression artifacts so bad that every video is riddle with screeches, pops, bangs and other and it set my teeth on edge the entire time I watched. It's like nails on a chalkboard.

The class is old and it's showing. The readings, which I clicked on religiously, are old and often irrelevant. Talking about the state of web development with an article from 2012 is useless today in 2020. This field moves too quickly to suffer this kind of neglect. The course readings need to be maintained and updated.

The professor is good and I enjoyed his teaching. The course has been helpful for my skills.

When reviewing other students' files, I found rampant cheating. People are cutting and pasting in the same code with the same identifying errors. Whatever-- if they want to ruin their learning that's fine. But I'm dragged into it when I'm forced to review their work and waste my time. My time is precious to me, I don't have enough as it is, let alone to spend it on cheaters.

Good course, but I have some reservations: we need a *useful* discussion forum to ask questions and discuss things, but as it is the forum is entirely taken up with 'please grade my assignment' requests. Also some more background explanation would be helpful - e.g. why are we learning three different ways to run scripts (npm scripts, grunt, gulp)? (I'm not saying we shouldn't, just want it explained why we should.) Also audio quality on the lessons is not great - would be improved by damping the keyboard - his typing sounds like a drum solo.

Lecturer extremely slow, wasting lots of time just typing lorum ipsum text. Poor explanation of concepts, purely reading out documentation. Assignments too easy to just copy paste. Grading too binary and easy to game (important elements not taken into account). Honors content (paying content) not worth anything. Out of 40 peer reviews, 4 were plagiarised (2 were my own work!), 25 were empty (no work), 9 were malicious code ((link:, and 2 were mediocre at best. Needless to say that I will be getting 0 valuable feedback on my work and paying the extra for the Honors is not worth anything. There are many free videos on Youtube that do a much better job.

T​eaching is perfect and the best part is assignment and self study by the extra resources, sometime teaching feels nearly fast as if you didnt aware some knowledge of javascript and css. So highly recommended to go for html css and basics of javascript courses before this. otherwise this is the best to know about web UI development through basic to advance.

This course exposes the developer to many facets of web development and provides a nice helping of techniques to make more responsive web pages. The instructor is good at explaining the rationale behind various techniques and you are left with enough experience to pursue your own endeavors to build nice web pages.

I finally understand how Bootstrap grid works and jQuery syntaxis. This course is basic but the teacher explains very well how bootstrap work, also if you are new to Git, you can learn pretty quickly how to use it and upload projects to Github account.

Even though the course is outdated, it still covers the important parts of learning front-end development assuming that you already have knowledge in html, css and javascript. For me, this is the best course about front-end dev in Coursera so far.

I​ really liked Sir Muppala style of teaching. Patiently, going through each and every line slowly and elaborating in a understanding way so that a student can understand the effect of each code. I believe it was beneficial for me. Thank You Sir.

If you have HTML, CSS & JavaScript knowledge at a very basic level. If you have just saw CSS you can still follow along. This course is actually good and you will have a lot of confidence in designing a site. Worth it.

An excellent course! Not for someone who doesn't have a basic understanding of programing unless you are ready to do some reading and research on your own. But for me, I loved it! I actually learned a lot from it!
